    Question Couple of questions

    How do you go about removing the switch panels on either side of the radio? I know about the bezel above the glove box, and the screws between the radio and the centre display. But no idea beyond that.

    My second question is regarding the centre display. Are the factory radios coded to the centre display. I went to replace my centre display this weekend, and while the new unit works, it doesn't display any information from the radio. Only the date, time, temp and range. The radio still works, can switch between fm/cd as normal, just no display.

    Any advice is greatly appreciated!

    Someone has previously mentioned using bluetack to remove the blank switch panels. Press hard on the front and pull.

    Re: stereo. Could be wrong, but I think it depends on whether you have half canbus or full canbus. Half canbus and the stereos need to have a code entered if power is interupted. Full canbus and the stereo is coded to the car/display and no requirement to enter the code if power is interupted. If you've got 4 buttons and two rocker switches on your steering wheel then you've got full canbus. 6 buttons and it's half canbus.
    From what you're saying, it sounds like you need to get the stereo married up to the replacement display via a tech2 reader.
